. when he's talking about the latino community. at that point was off the record. that's now been agreed it's on the record. why has it taken so long, four years, for the president to reach this point on immigration reform and why should people believe it will happen in 2013 if he's re-elected since it did happen in the first four -- didn't happen in the first four year. >> look at the latino and hispanic community and what they saw in the debate stage from governor romney and rick santorum and rick perry. i mean look, these are folks that -- to say they alienated the hispanic latino communities in this country is an understatement. that's why you see support in states like nevada and new mexico, virginia and florida and ohio from the latino and hispanic communities. these are votes that the president has earned based on the actions he's taken on behalf of the community over the last 12 months, not just the last 12 months but three and a half years, and i take the president at his word that's something he'll pursue in a second term. so the record is very, very stark as it relates to the
in a more aggressive way. >> i want to ask you about the enthusiasm gap particularly among latino voters. we see in our polling while the president has a huge edge in the latino vote, there's a real drop-off since 2008 when then it was 77% enthusiasm, now it is 59% in terms of hispanic americans. what you going to do to make sure people turn out? >> nare sending me all over the country. i'll be at jefferson-jackson dinner in iowa, i've been it to florida. we have surrogates all across the country. we have a grassroots campaign that has been talked about as the most aggressive, the most focused on social media and on a broad cross-section of speaking to voters. we're going to knock on doors and talk to voters, and we're going to get that vote out. i agree that our work is cut out for us. it's cut out for them, too. that's what elections are all about. >> thank you very much, mr. mayor. i know you're out there at the campaign event where the president is going to be speaking later. you just gave your speech, and thanks for joining us today. >> thank you, andrea. sorry we were a little late, bu
the numbers it shows that key parts of president obama's coalition african-americans, latinos, are actually putting a high importance on the debates which actually kind of shows the challenge that mitt romney has to actually get his side as enthusiastic about it. >> a shrinking group of undecided voters, chris cizilla, what is the strategy of both sides to reach those people who are still undecided? >> you saw the clip you played with mitt romney in colorado, president obama on sunday night in las vegas, both basically what they both said is the media wants this to be a back and forth brawl, we're going to be serious and focus on the issues because they understand that when it comes to undecided voters, tend to be people, not always, politically independent. those kind of people don't like the nastiness, the back and forth. partisans love that. but independents don't like it. the messaging is i'm a serious person, these are serious times, and we need someone who has the ability, capacity, demonstrated record to lead. so i actually think both of them will be kind of the serious and sober pol
latinos in 2008. look, this is a problem in this election for republicans, andrea, but a bigger problem in 2016, 2020 and beyond. the hispanic community is obviously a young community, it's a growing community, it's a community that's going to register to vote more in line with their population numbers in years to come. republicans simply cannot lose the hispanic vote by 40, 50 points. they can't even lose it by 20 points. people like jeb bush, marco rubio who you showed earlier they understand that. i think the party needs to have a reckoning with where they are in immigration and courting hispanics. numbers like that, mitt romney maybe can win with a number like that, possibly nationally, but i will tell you in 2016, 2020 and beyond the party nominee will be hard pressed to win losing hispanic business that kind of margin. >> and finally, how big a deal is joe biden saying that the middle class has been buried for the last four years? >> yeah. >> republicans are going to make a big deal out of it. >> and are making a big deal out of it. web video this morning, you played paul ryan's c
. people are enthusiastic. president obama enjoys overwhelming support from women. from latinos, from middle class voters and from independents, and he is going to win this election because people know that we can't go backwards, as mitt romney has proposed, to economic policies that crashed our economy. we can't turn medicare into a voucher system. we can't have a president who would veto the dream act and thinks we should have 12 million undocumented immigrants self-deport. we can't have a candidate become president like mitt romney who hasek treatment views on women's health. >> let's me ask you about what's going on with florida. senator nelson according to democrats whom i talked to in the last 24 hours, say that connie mack, whom you see on the screen, has risen unexpected to them because bill nelson, senator, did badly in his debates. are you going to lose your senate seat there? zplo zplo. >> no bill nelson will win the election. he's been ahead of connie mack who is extremely conservative and that does not have the policy chops or the experience to earn the support of florida
. the trajectory in colorado is not good for the president. latinos keeping him in the game. >> luke, i want to talk about this, "the washington post" is conducting a daily tracking poll, 50/47 yesterday, romney, today 49/48. one of the things i hear from the obama team is your likely voter sample and all the samples out there is missing a critical piece of folks and that is young voters. that they are -- we are counting them as they're not going to vote this time. the obama team clearly is relying on them. tell us what you've been doing a lot of research on this. youth vote now and 2008 and back. >> it's interesting. something that came to the forefront in 2008. nationally, though, the -- it was only a one-point uptick in percentage of the share of the electorate which is 18%. the question for the obama team is will it be that high again. they believe it will be. obviously looks like we're going to have more voters this time than last time. something that's a common factor. where it helped them in 2008 was it flipped a few states in indiana, north carolina, margins were close, helped out, a
the latino community but people across the state. >> finally pennsylvania, there's a lot of talk out of pennsylvania that senator bob casey is in some difficulty, that pennsylvania is closer than it should be from a democratic perspective. >> for any of these states mitt romney has been trying to compete in ohio, trying to -- it's been hard nut for that campaign to crack. they haven't been able to. now they're playing this bluffing game of trying to expand the math. our belief is the math is set. same states we've been talking about. no way i will dye my hair black and wear a fake mustache if they win pennsylvania, michigan or new mexico. these are not states we're concerned about. of course we're on the ground, competing for every vote but this is a bluff by the romney team. >> we've got a jen psaki and david axelrod bet. this will be interesting. >> it will be. >> you're watching live pictures of staten island as you can see quite a change there as well from this storm. and we'll be right back. loating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day >> question t these dig
